A calorie is in fact a calorie. It is true that carbohydrates, fats, and proteins each have different energy expenditures (loss) during human metabolism but these differences are already reflected in their rated calorie values - they are "net" values after metabolism. The law of conservation of energy trumps fad diet books, gross misconceptions, and imprecisely controlled human experiments.

Generally such theses are well founded in reason and logic but it's very difficult to make money from them, in this case by shorting the power companies, because not only does the basic premise need to be correct but so does the secondary and tertiary effects of that premise. In other words, these theses have to get multiple predictions correct, some of which are nearly impossible to do so considering all the permutations of possible outcomes.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
